Two unidentified miscreants overnight attacked a fire station in Karachi, killing two employees and injuring one, Geo News reported Saturday.

The gunfire attack took place inside the fire department’s office close to Bilal Chowrangi in the Korangi area of the city in the early hours of Saturday. A fourth employee saved his life by fleeing the scene.

The SSP Korangi Faisal Bashir Memon said that the attackers managed to escape easily after the gun assault.

According to an eyewitness account of the attack from a fire station employee, Mehboob was on guard duty while he was on operator duty when two armed individuals stormed the building.

The outlaws asked Mehboob about the rest of the employees. After he replied to their question, the accused took Amir Qureshi and Irshad at gunpoint and brought them from the inner part of the building to the control room.

After they rounded up the four employees at the control room, they opened fire at them, killing two of them on the spot. The deceased have been identified as Amir and Mehboob. 

“They opened fire at us after they rounded us up,” said injured fireman Mohammad Irshad.

SSP Korangi says that the assailants were two in number.
